The Gerdin Business Building expansion for the Ivy College of Business at Iowa State University creates a dynamic nexus and intellectual center for the University. The design expands the College’s ability to foster collaboration and innovation among business scholars through modern teaching methodologies, impactful research, and community engagement.
A welcoming, daylight-filled lobby is now the heart of the College, serving as a connective tissue between the new expansion and original building. Strategic spatial organization, refined programming, and simplicity in design have resulted in seamless integration of the expansion with the ISU campus. Increased pedagogical spaces and universal design strategies enhance the student, faculty, and visitor experience.

For the 21st year of the West 18th Street Fashion Show, BNIM was selected along with six other local Kansas City architecture firms to create a backdrop that reflected the theme for this year’s show: "Summer Tableau." This year's theme was based around the themes of the 1960s counterculture movement, and BNIM worked in collaboration with AL Huber to design and fabricate a backdrop for local fashion designer, Craig Rohner. BNIM’s design for the backdrop is inspired by the psychedelic patchwork-clad geodesic domes of the Drop City commune in Colorado. Sustainable and cost-effective materials were top priority for the design which led to the idea of upcycling old billboard vinyl to create the patchwork of the dome.
